This week we dove into our April Orange Art Box and the girls made some fun and useful creations! We are also giving away a May Orange Art Box at the end of this post, so make sure to stick around. Now let me show you all the fun from April.
The kit reviewed in this post was provided by Orange Art Box. All opinions are my own (and my kids’).
We received our April Orange Art Box about a week ago, and the girls opened it up on a Facebook Live on my page. Here is the silly video of the unboxing:
We loved that the box had a theme – Marvelous Mosaics. Most of the items in the kit related to mosaics, plus there were a couple little bonuses. I liked that the girls got to learn about one art style with the box. It made the box not only fun and creative, but also educational!
The Marvelous Mosaics box contained some really great crafts. In addition to the crafts I will show you below, there were also three line drawings on heavy paper that can be decorated with the leftover mosaic tiles and tissue paper, plus you can use your own markers, crayons, or paint. There was a pen with multiple colors of scented ink and also a die with various sayings on it that would answer a yes or no question.
The girls started with the door hanger and exclamation point. Both were made of a sturdy clear plastic. One side had paper on it that could be pulled back to expose a sticky surface. How awesome for little crafters, it’s not messy! I poured the plastic mosaic tiles into little dishes to make them easier to use.
Vada put a lot of thought into her door hanger. She wanted to create a landscape. There were designs that could be followed if you wanted to, but both or the girls wanted to go it on their own.
Below you can see their final creations. They really enjoyed this craft and they were able to make each piece in their own style.
Let me take a moment to tell you how the kit purchases work. If you choose a subscription service, you are billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Your subscription is renewed automatically and you can cancel anytime. If you choose a gift, you will be billed for the plan you chose upfront and it will not renew. It is a one time fee.
Next the girls decorated the wood matchbox. Vada applied the Mod Podge with the sponge brush, and Kyla placed the tissue paper. We found the folder from the box made a great work surface!
The girls finished the box and had me take a picture, but a while later they decided they weren’t really done. They used some of the plastic mosaic pieces to put their initials on the box. I loved the creativity!
We are all very happy with our first Orange Art Box. The girls had a lot of fun, and are thrilled that there are plenty of extra supplies to have more mosaic fun. They still have the line drawings to decorate as well. I like all that as well, and I also like that there is some instruction, but the kids are encouraged to really get creative. It’s not cookie-cutter art, it’s original art, and they learned some as well!
